On December 9, 2019, a guest lecture on “WRITING IDENTITY, LANGUAGE AND POLITICS: A Refugee Experience”, was organised by the Department of English. The speakerwas Mr. Tenzin Tsundue, an internationally renowned Tibetan poet and activist.
As a refugee living between the dream of tomorrow and the reality of today, Mr. Tsundue spoke about how he finds the life of an exile extremely fascinating because it makes one imaginative, creative and resourceful in adaptation. He stressed the importance of writing as a means of articulating one’s innermost thoughts, as an act of resistance, and of creating one’s own identity. Mr. Tsundue also read from best-selling poetry collection, Kora.
The session was highly interactive and the audience comprised Staff and Students from the College, as well as from the Departments of English of M.D. Shah Mahila College, Sathaye College and Maharashtra College.
